Located 50 miles north of San Francisco
in the heart of California Wine Country in downtown Santa Rosa, Rendez Vous Bistro blends
modern convenience with a romantic, distinctly old-world ambience. We have proudly recreated an authentic 1930s
French bistro, featuring antique style French lighting fixtures, a custom
designed expansive bar, hand laid stone floor, and colorful wall and ceiling
Bistro is the vision of Nino Rabbaa, a young man of
Lebanese heritage, who spent many years in Paris and obviously fell in love
with that city. He has taken that love
and transformed it into the most exciting restaurant Santa Rosa has seen since
... well, there’s never been anything quite like it.
Rabbaa fondly remembers the
bistros where Parisians congregate to read newspapers, quote Rabelais, discuss
politics, and eat, drink and make friends. Why not re-create such a place in the heart of
downtown Santa Rosa?
Our tables and chairs echo traditional Parisian style, adding
a cheerful and comfortable element. The
expansive heated patio adjoins a cascading fountain, green lawn, and tall
redwood trees. It features a tasteful enclosure
with removable sides for year-round dining pleasure.
is a strong supporter of Sonoma County and its growers: we buy from local
vendors whenever possible, offering fresh and tempting seasonal fare. Our superb wine collection
features delectable vintages from both Californian and French appellations.
Bistro, a picturesque focal point on the bustling corner of 4th Street and
Courthouse Square, proudly invites you to share in the age-old pastime of
dining, relaxing, and conversing in a vibrant atmosphere. We hope you will join us soon and often – à bientôt.
